Java EE Tools

JavaEE 5 projects are now runnable

    Support for deploying JavaEE projects on a JavaEE-compliant server now includes JavaEE 5 . This was tested using Servlet 2.5 projects on Apache Tomcat 6 and Geronimo application servers. For JavaEE 5, some servers may still require deployment descriptors, even though they are optional. By default, they are only generated for Dynamic Web projects. Check your server documentation for details.

JSP

Support for editing Simple Tag Extension files

    Custom tags declared by JSP 2.0 .tag and .tagx files can now be edited within the JSP editor. They will also be validated through the JSP Validator.
